from a treetop
emptiness dropped down
in a cicada shell
black forest
whatever you may say
a morning of snow

    Also a fan of Alice and being delightfully mad… after all the best people are!

    I had not realized that there are two kinds of these insects – though both are loud.
    The 17 year Cicada is, I believe a louder drummer!

    Thanks for stopping by my post on the prompt and leaving a link 🙂
